That first 150 KWH costs 20 cents a KWH and this bill for 187 KWH averages before taxes at 18.9 cents a KWH.
I will now have some of the highest electric bills of my life and these rates per KWH have got to be some of the highest in the nation in counties that are the poorest in Colorado full of people who live below the poverty line.
Here you are like myself trying to live frugally but are penalized because you do not use massive amount of electricity. It appears for this month my usage will be around 230 KWH's and the average for that amount before taxes will be around 15.6 cents a KWH.
I don't give a shit what anyone says this is what you called getting screwed.
This bill is for 187 KWH's and was for three weeks.
|20.0 KWH x 0.315384 = $6.31|
|130.0 KWH x 0.186668 = $24.27|
|37.0 KWH x 0.124652 = $4.61|
|TOTAL CURRENT BILL||$38.10|
Where I moved from the town owned it's own electric company and we bought on the open markets just like the big boys do and just like this company in this case. Bought electricity around 4.2 to 4.5 cents a KWH and the rates being charged to customers has remained fairly constant and are at 9.5 in the summer and 8.4 in the winter months.
San Isabel Electric is a co-op and supposedly a nonprofit. I just have an issue with ripping people off who have little to begin with and this little burg is full of people just like that.
